Marc Fish, Laminaria Library Steps, UK, 2015

Marc Fish’s unique sculptural library steps are hand-carved from American black walnut. This work showcases Fish’s incredible mastery of today’s most refined practices in micro stack-lamination, which favor cold carving techniques. Manipulated into sinuous layered shapes, the wood has been hand-carved, sanded, polished, and finished with oil and wax. Following Fish’s Laminaria Console, this piece furthers the artist’s exploration of twisted seaweed forms, as its title, Laminaria, a genus of seaweed, suggests.  At once unique sculpture and functional object, the sinuous and delicate library steps  embody a seemingly organic form while revealing the artist’s hand at work.

As Fish only creates a few select designs per year, his work is in high demand. Custom designs and finishes may be requested.
